Development: Working to reduce hunger, poverty and inequality in communities and around the world. Crop: A field of plants that is grown to be harvested as food, feed for livestock, fuel or for any other economic purpose.Famine: A drastic, wide-reaching food shortage which results in severe hunger, even death. Though the word is used frequently, a famine is a rare occurrence. Not all food crises result in famine. According to the World Food Programme in order for a famine to be declared, there must be evidence of specific conditions. The ‘famine’ square is removed from the regular sequence of this game to underscore that it is a rare and catastrophic event. Food Assistance: The distribution of food to those who are in need. It may also include distributing cash or vouchers to people to buy food in a local market or distributing tools or agricultural inputs like fertilizer to help people grow food. Most of Canada’s international food assistance is purchased in the region where it is to be distributed. Buying food locally, as opposed to shipping it from Canada, benefits or reduces harm to the local economy. Also, food purchased locally is usually more culturally appropriate.Seed bank: A collection of seeds, of different plant varieties and species, which is stored to preserve genetic diversity. This helps ensure diversity and quality of future crops and food consumption. Seed banks may be in the form of a cooperative in which local farmers can share seeds.Soil erosion: A process that removes the fertile topsoil layers and carries it away from farmers’ fields. Terraces: A series of flat areas resembling a series of steps that have been formed on a slope to allow for farming on a hill or mountain. Terraced fields decrease erosion and surface runoff.Topsoil: The upper, outermost layer of soil which has the highest concentration of nutrient rich organic matter.
